I first encountered Xeno via the Usenet Newsgroup rec.sport.rowing newsgroup on the Internet in 1995.
He asked if anyone wanted help coaching/rowing or whatever. I was coaching a freshman's Eight and Xeno gave me advice and insight into his training.
If I remember correctly he was pulling 1,40 splits on the Concept B for an hour at a heart rate of 160.
Xeno said then "The most important thing for a freshmen's Eight is that the rowers learn to fight."
